Student Support


Behaviour Principles – Governors’ Statement
We believe that good behaviour is essential to allow all our students to achieve their full potential. Good behaviour promotes effective learning; effective teaching and learning promote good behaviour. We do not believe that any student should be allowed to behave in a manner which adversely affects the learning opportunities of others.
We believe in a culture of inclusion, equal opportunities and respect for all members of our community and in the importance of self-discipline and self-esteem. Discrimination will not be tolerated. We recognise that students with unusual emotional or behavioural needs should receive support to achieve the expected standard of behaviour.
We view as essential a system of rewards for good or improving behaviour and sanctions where standards fall below an expected level. Rewards and sanctions will be applied consistently and fairly. Individual student behaviour is monitored and parents or carers will be kept informed where there are any concerns.
The College has an effective and easily understood Behaviour Policy, a Home-College Agreement to be signed by parents/carers, students and the Principal and agreed ‘House Styles’ for our learners and staff; these clearly outline the College’s approach to behaviour for learning and conduct and rewards and sanctions.
